When I’m sewing I get a bit absent minded … concentrating on my creation and not where I’m putting things! Back in 2014, when I started teaching, I had to get out of the habit of holding pins in my mouth …not only was it dangerous ~ I could accidently swallow one ~ but totally unhygenic too!
I came up with this wrist pin cushion pattern, using a milk bottle top to stop the pins from pricking me!
Oh I thoroughly enjoyed sewing these Pj’s up, for quickness I made the shorts version plus it’s summer here now too. Tilly has created another fabulous sewing pattern with the Jaimie’s, coupled with her how-to video they make a wonderful starting point to introduce you into sewing. There’s been an extra size added for teens / tweens too so no excuses not to get started here!
If you’ve been into the shop asking about patterns, you’ll know that Fiona and I rave about Jalie Patterns. The simplicity of them, coupled with their extensive size range make them a firm favourite. The Michelle (#3911) is a great pattern for a Cami and Dress.
A recess zip can be made and added to any bag, whether it’s lined or not.
It’s a handy technique to know, use your off cuts and bright fabrics, break out that stash of unloved zips, make loads of them. It’s great for practicing your topstitching. Either go bold with contrasting stitching or stealth with perfectly co-ordinated thread. Why not use up all you thread ends and have multi-coloured stitching.
Here’s the DOWNLOAD for the PDF tutorial to make your recess zip. If you make some please share, we’d love to see yours!
Spend £45 to qualify for FREE postage. All fabrics are PRICED by the HALF METER.

Wishing you all peace, love and no-unpicking!
